PARKKINEN Sami

Father and Son

Finlande

2016 - Invité

The “Father and Son” series focuses on how the world can be seen: children see things that are invisible to adults. The photographs presented in the series deliver a more general reflection on the world around us. They are a peaceful manifesto against greed, cynicism, war and materialism.
